Talking Car for Sale

Apparently, KITT, the talking car from the 80's TV show Knight Rider, is being auctioned on eBay (or at least one of the original vehicles used in that role, according to the auction description). From the auction description:
If you were a Knight Rider / "KITT" fan back in the early to mid 80's you will recogonize this car! The Knight Rider TV series ran from September 1982 until August 1986. David Hasselhoff played Michael Knight opposite the real star, KITT. KITT was a 300mph, high tech, self aware communicative, man-made marvel, designed to aid and protect Michael Knight. Together with his human co-star, KITT fought for justice across America. This is one of the original vehicles from the series introduced initially in the third season and then re-converted to simulate the "Super Pursuit Mode" variant of KITT that debuted in the 4th season and was later used in the Knight Rider made for television movie (1984) and for exhibition and promotional purposes. One of KITT's many technologies. ...
From the wayback machine:

Indulge your inner David Hasselhoff! Although, to be honest, I'd much rather indulge his Baywatch years, but that's just me. :) Heck, let's do just that:
